The Bon Jovi Experience

 

The Bon Jovi Experience are the world's first and finest Jovi tribute act.

 

"The best tribute I've ever seen" Jon Bon Jovi.

 

One of the most iconic bands of the 80's, Bon Jovi had platinum selling albums and a plethora of anthemic singles around the world... The fact that they have performed live with Jon Bon Jovi himself and are featured on the official Bon Jovi website tells you all you need to know.

 

This five piece band power their way through 2 hours of rocking tunes giving 100%. Front man Tony Pearce bears an uncanny resemblance to Jon Bon Jovi and his soaring vocals compliment the tight musicianship of the band. You will rock 'til you drop.

 

"They are just fantastic" Chris Evans

N.S. Harsha – Facing

Glyn Vivian Art Gallery - 25mins walk from our B&B

 

Artes Mundi & Glynn Vivian partnership

 

N.S. Harsha is one of India’s leading artists and this is the largest exhibition of his work in the UK, including the premiere of a work directly from the Sydney Biennale 2018 and another work specially conceived for the Glynn Vivian. Harsha won the Artes Mundi prize in 2008.

 

Harsha’s work encompasses themes of both the local and the global, drawing together details of everyday life in his native India with world events and images we see on the news. His work mixes the local with the universal and draws our attention to the whimsical and the absurd as much as the tragic and to the internationally significant.

 

Harsha works in painting, sculpture and installation, but is also inspired by a socially engaged practice, drawing communities into his work which echoes his generosity and spirit allowing the viewer to look at the world around them in a playful way.
